# Thread: Algebra - The Plea of a Perfectionist

1. ## Algebra - The Plea of a Perfectionist

Greetings! I am doing some review for an upcoming test and, being the perfectionist I am, would be much obliged if someone could offer some confirmation on a certain algebra problem.

The problem is as follows:

$\displaystyle h = at - 0.25vt^2$

Solve for a.

$\displaystyle \frac{0.25vt^2 + h}{t} = a$

Is this correct? Thank you for the help!
